Today I had a very special commitment: I have been at the New Dowse in Lower Hutt to support the 'Big Latch On'!
As part of celebrations for World Breastfeeding Week, La Leche League was holding the Big Latch On which is an attempt to break the world record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously. The emphasis was on making this an opportunity for the mums to get together and have a chat, some morning tea and celebrate the relationships with each other and their babies.
There have been almost 100 mums with their babies and kids filling the conference room at the New Dowse - what an atmosphere! I was offering the mums free neck & shoulder massages - and as you can imagine they where very well received :-)
And who deserves it more than mums?!...
